A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck off Indonesia's coast, no immediate reports of damage, no tsunami warning was issued

JAKARTA - A 5.8-MAGNITUDE earthquake struck off Indonesia's coast on Wednesday, the US Geological Survey said, although there were no immediate reports of damage and no tsunami warning was issued. The quake hit at a shallow depth of 18km at 9.01 pm local time (14.01 GMT, 10.01pm Singapore time) around 190km from Sibolga on Indonesia's Sumatra island, the USGS said. The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said there were no warnings or advisories following the quake. Indonesia sits on the Pacific 'Ring of Fire', where the meeting of continental plates causes high seismic activity, and Sumatra is particularly prone to earthquakes. -- AFP
